Receptors tachykinin

receptors, tachykinin

cell surface proteins that bind tachykinins with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behaviour of cells. Three classes of tachykinin receptors have been characterised, the nk-1, nk-2, and nk-3, which prefer, respectively, substance p, neurokinin a (substance k, neurokinin alpha, neuromedin l), and neurokinin b (neurokinin beta, neuromedin k).
